For a start. I'm sure there are some more cases which should be 
considered, but the most important ones are probably the ones you 
described.

Call it "Advanced Audio Mixer", have it offer the Alsa channels and offer 
to show only a subset, make it play nicely with the new-skool mixer and 
world domination will be ours. Nope, that came out wrong. Let me try 
again: And all our users rejoiced.

There, much better. The easy cases can work with the new-skool mixer and 
if you need something specific, use the Advanced mixer.

Hopefully people needing the Advanced mixer will share their use cases and 
these can then be considered for inclusion into the new-skool mixer.

I think that's worth a seperate discussion...
